we hear from this administration is that the new secretary of state john kerry will be staying behind, will circle back to jerusalem on saturday night, meet with netanyahu and his people and try to reinvigorate it. so there was that attempt. we're seeing reports that abbas, the palestinian leader, is now willing to forego his requirement that a settlement freeze exists and be declared by netanyahu openly before any peace talks resume. it seems as though the palestinian stance is softening. but it is not front and center. the president tried to put it there today while at the same time delivering what i think israelis wanted to hear about iran and about syria. >> jamie, andrea brings up a good point, that abbas has, in a sense, reached out and said, okay, we will consider this aspect of things. how key is that to starting any sort of peace talks again? >> well, that has been the block to actual meetings. the palestinians have said until there's a settlement freeze, the position that the united states had taken as well that andrea referred to, until there is such a freeze, then there wo
in the flotilla incident. on the ground right now, secretary of state john kerry has stayed behind to see if he can turn good words into good deeds between the israelis and palestinians. he's here trying to get the israelis and palestinians to agree on terms to negotiate about how they're going to negotiate, but even still people here aren't very optimistic that the secretary of state is going to have any success, at least in the short-term, at getting everybody back to the bargaining table. back to you. >> heather: leeland vittert, thank you. >> rick: for a lot of people, thoughts of wolves might conjure images of fairy tale villains. for others they trigger a real sense of fear. >> heather: so how did they get this big bad reputation and more importantly, do they deserve it? a pair of researchers actually lived alongside a wolf pack and they were the subject of a recent documentary. >> the pack they studied proved far different from the demons of ancient myths. rather, they were animals devoted to one another, capable of affection and bonds resembling those of human families. >> heather: you
of state, john kerry, the vice president, joe biden, who also have to answer for their role in this. people like wolfowitz, cheney, rumsfeld, should not be given any kind of honor in this society. they should be held accountable for the u.s. soldiers that were killed and i think it's many more than 100,000 iraqis that were killed. >> i'm sure. mike, former bush speechwriter david frumm has written a column in which he reveals long conversations held in 2002 with dick cheney. according to frumm, the two men talked less about promoting democracy and how iraq might become a source of oil to the united states. mike, was cheap oil really at the heart of this invasion? >> you know, i wouldn't go that far, martin, but i would say that fears that the persian gulf could be disrupted by saddam and oil, therefore, become much more expensive were certainly part of it. i'm not a huge fan of most of the folks from the bush administration, myself. but i do think that someone like dick cheney did not fundamentally seek to expand american influence, you know, imperialistically or go for big oil profits for
, that is the official stance of the palestinians, united states and united nations. we understand john kerry's push will take place over the next six months to bring the israelis and palestinians together. it is critical. >> the shear number of settlements, how might that affect the prospect after two-state solution? >> well, going back to -- >> sorry -- >> the relationship for a second here, i think when we look at obama's visit here, like a few years ago, people were talking about leading from behind when it came to obama, in the middle east. and i think what we have seen come to pass. is only one of those words coming true and it wasn't -- it isn't leading. there has been just tremendous frustration as on both sides as martin mentions. palestinians are as frustrated with obama's presidency as israelis have been. so i think that is really something that he has to tackle first. and on the beast today, on the daily beast, the brookings institute has a really interesting primer on what obama should look for here at this meeting and some of the objectives he should go for. one of them is that he shou

of state john kerry. we are hearing now that the secretary of state will be coming back here on saturday to speak privately with prime minister netanyahu about the peace process, trying to figure out what it is that can be done to get the peace process started again between the israelis and the palestinians. you know it's been stalled for many years now. a lot of concern that it is going to die. but we are going to see the president coming here first talking to the prime minister, and then tomorrow he'll be headed over to the west bank to speak with president mahmoud abbas, who is going to be talking, of course, about the peace process. a lot of concern that nothing will come out of it. zoraida? >> all right, sara sidner, live in jerusalem for us. >> also developing in the region this morning a lot of finger pointing in syria. the assad regime and rebel forces both accusing one another of using chemical weapons. syrian state media yesterday claiming that opposition forces launched a chemical attack in aleppo province, killing at least two dozen people, injuring more than 100. rebels deny
john kerry noted ,-com,-com ma therefore we are working with our partners to strengthen the opposition on the ground. reporter: russia continues to look at the concerns. jon: thank you. speak to the growing concerns of the nation of cyprus. the government elected to come up with a plan be after the parliament levied a tax of up to 10% on anyone who had any bank deposits. now the question is whether they going to do. this is important for us and of course, that can affect our 401k. but that dow average just hit a record high. greg is following the story from london. reporter: that's right, folks today are scrambling to come up with a new way from dragging all of your done with it. they voted down a plan that would see big bites taken out of private bank accounts. again, there has to be a way to get this country out of the way. one way to do it is lax banking regulations. moscow has a stake in all this. officials are reportedly looking for a big loan. back in, with strings like energy and getting rights for the people. the banks are worrying that people. we are told that it could be clos

of state john kerry will remain at least a little bit trying to maybe get this israeli/palestinian peace process off the ground. >> jump-start it. >> he has some political issues he has to deal with, major issues here. how much of a subject of importance will this be for the president? >> look, i think this has been very good for the president because there were lots of people in the american jewish community, particularly during this last election, who saw benjamin netanyahu cozying up to mitt romney, who were very skeptical about the president and israel. i think this trip as john king was saying earlier makes it very clear particularly when the president on the question of iran said all options are on the table, period, the president made it very clear as he said in his speech today, you are not alone. so i think domestically, politically, this trip is only good for the president. it makes him be seen as a leader. next to benjamin netanyahu these two men need each other in many ways right now and i think that is why you see this relationship blossoming. >> richard haas do you think an

situation is, my administration is committed to doing our part. and i know that secretary of state john kerry intends to spend significant time, effort and energy in trying to bring about a closing of the gap between the parties. we can not give up on the search for peace. too much is at stake. and if we're gonna succeed, part of what we're going to have to do is to get out of some of the formulas and habits that have blocked progress for so long. both sides are going to have to think anew. those of us in the united states are going to have to think anew. but i'm confident that we can arrive at our destination to advance the vision of two nations, two neighbors, at peace, israel and palestine. if given the chance, one thing that i'm very certain of is that the palestinians have the talent, the drive, and the courage to succeed in their own state. i think of the villages that hold peaceful protests because they understand the moral force of nonviolence. i think of the importance that palestinian families place on education. i think of the entrepreneurs determined to create something new,
words turn into good deeds? to that end, secretary of state john kerry is scheduled to come back here tomorrow and begin actually the really hard work of diplomacy to see if he can get the israelis and palestinians to negotiate about maybe negotiating about a peace deal. still a long way off and despite all the applause and accolades of this trip, i don't think there is any real optimism it will make a huge difference on the ground, at least not immediately. back to you. >> brian: i know the president says it's time for both sides to drop preconditions and just go and talk. so if they could agree to agree to talk eventually, that would be progress. >> anna: that would be progress. but there have been a lot of harsh critics stepping forward. newt gingrich being one, saying this is something that western leaders typically do sometimes to make themselves feel good, that so much of the arab world, you know, speaking candidly, mind you, but that something that they're just doing to make themselves feel a bit better. >> steve: leend la vittert, we u.s. very much and good job. he quoted his
